About Ya Ya Chinese School

Ya Ya Chinese School offers children an immersive experience in Chinese culture by teaching Mandarin speaking and reading skills, children's Kung Fu and Tai Chi, calligraphy, painting, hand work/arts and crafts, and music, all within the context of a small, loving family day care setting.  Each student gets individual attention from Teacher He, a Tai Chi master and teacher with 22 years experience teaching Mandarin to children in the public elementary school system in China.  He Laoshi (Ya Ya) uses this experience to engage students thereby encouraging curiosity, learning, and development of social skills and confidence.  He Laoshi uses English instruction as a supplement to the Mandarin based education program when needed to encourage learning and social development.  Students are provided many opportunities for enrichment that extend beyond the classroom in the form of field trips and school/community events.   The children are also given a nourishing home made lunch and snack each day.

Please call or email for more information or feel free to complete the Application for Enrollment.
